Abstraction rules for this Berlin trio; trumpeter Axel Dörner blows turbulently straited columns of air through his horn, frequently treating them with electronics, while clarinest Kai Fagashinski uncorks fragile harmonic snorts, whinnies and whispers. Sometimes the pair even play conventional-sounding notes. These shifting, aspirated sound streams are embedded in austere beds of electronic tones and twitters constructed by sampler player Boris Baltschun, a mix of jagged pitch-shifting and subdued rumbling. The music hovers, marbled with wind-tunnel harmonic effects. Peter Margasak (Down Beat)
